New to ret, pls help me
Return to board index
so i am new to the ret scene, and frankly i suck. really , what the hell am i doing wrong.
this is my link,
so i use BoM, with either martyr or command, depending on fight. and i pretty much follow a standard ret " rotation " as close to a rotation as there is one. i dont think that i am lacking in stats that much, if at all for the gear lvl that i have. i think the problem that i have is that i have played prot for so long, i am out of touch with the ret community. i have 75 heroic badges, and 41 25 man badges, is there an immediate upgrade that i should get? i purchased some things today from the vendor and equip'd them, but sold them back cause nothing i bought made that much of a diff.
so my main ? is that i went to town on a dummy in IF, using wings, and only pulled off 2400dps, and knowing that a dummy has no armour and is 10 lvl's lower than i am, i think maybe that equals like 1900 dps at best in a raid. what am i doing wrong? i hope that i provided what you need to know to tell me the answer that i am looking for, if not ask and i shall provide, when i am able to log on again. the other prob that i have is that when i raid, 99% of the time i tank, and i dont need anything from 25 mans for my tank set ( minus ulduar ) of course. but we have loot set as main spec first and the off set. so keep that in mind when suggesting gear pls. my chances of getting offset gear is about a 1 in 15 chance on a roll. ty for your time and have a good day.

There is nothing wrong with gemming for hit at all, Hitcap>Str.
That being said most of your hit will come with gear so swap out the hit gems asap.
Change the crit gem in your legs to something more useful (something with Str on it)
Apart from that, do as rys07tc advised and get the 4p T7 bonus, nice dps boost right there
P.S. your a drainei (spelling) so you have 1% hit in the bag, meaning you can get rid of some hit as its "wasted" points (your cap may be 7% but as you will always have racial, your effective cap is 7%)
The biggest thing is for you to ditch Glyph of Seal of Command, and get Blood/Martyr instead, and use Martyr to DPS, it's far superior in every way.
2400 self buffed DPS is perfectly fine in your gear. You seem to be doing far better than most who come on here asking for beginner advice. You seem to know the basics already.
I would replace that AP gem on your gloves with a STR one, and use bold dragon's eyes instead of blue gems to activate your meta.
And yes, you are 1% over hit cap, because you're a draenei.
Use the raid dummy, it's level ? and labeled as 'Boss', that'll give you a baseline for your raid DPS before buffs.
